As Bill Kochman explains in such articles as the series "2012: New Age Deception And Psychobabble
", in Muslim endtime theology, the term "Masih al-Dajjal"refers to "the False Messiah", "the Deceiving Messiah", "the False Prophet" or "the Great Deceiver". Some Muslims believe that al-Dajjal will appear somewhere between Syria and Iraq, and that he will create an army from the people whom he has deceived. al-Dajjal will then wage war against Jesus, who will be leading the Army of the Righteous. However, Muslims also believe that Jesus -- under the leadership of the Mahdi -- will then say that everyone must submit to Islam, or else be destroyed. Please also refer to the terms "Mahdi
" and "Twelver
" for additional information, as well as the article To Tell the Truth : Moshiach, Mahdi or the Messiah?
